Satsang & Kirtan with Mark Ross and Francoise "Shantdeep" Roy
The journey to Being begins and ends right here... in this moment.
Satsang - A meeting in Love, a meeting in Truth.
You have heard the calling. An inexplicable yearning to go deeper into the unknown. This calling is the impulse from the ineffable for you to come home to your-Self. Satsang is a sacred opportunity to dive deeply into the direct recognition of who you are beyond the limitations of the conditioned mind, and ultimately to encounter life from this place-less place of unified Being.
Satsang is a sanskrit word that means "association with the highest Truth". These gatherings provide an opportunity to allow the walls of belief, opinion and interpretation to fall away and to simply rest in the timelessness of Being. In satsang we meet in an innocent way that allows silence to merge the meeting of two into the recognition of One. Satsang is a spontaneous flowing mixture of stillness, meditative self- inquiry, questions, insights and sharing. Nothing is scripted. Interactions effortlessly flow from silence and return into silence. Each meeting invites you to go beyond your conditioned ways of seeing, and helps to facilitate the direct recognition of who you are beyond the construct of thought created self. Satsang engages you on intuitive and energetic levels that silently work beyond the words that are spoken.
What is my role in coming to satsang?
No experience meditating or attending satsang is required. Everyone who attends satsang is encouraged to keep an open mind and Heart.
The afternoon will begin with a short period of silence followed by a guided meditation, Q & A, sharing circle and kirtan.
What is Kirtan?
* Kirtan is a very simple & powerful way to meditate. It's effortless & joyful; the music does the work for you as you flow with the melody & rhythm.
* The performers & the participants create the experience together.
* The chants are usually sung in Sanskrit. The ancient chants contain powerful renewing & transformative energy that helps us reconnect with the Divinity that resides within all of us.
* Singing is the heart of kirtan, and no one cares what you sound like. At a kirtan concert all voices merge together to become One Voice.
* "Kirtan is a means of finding our way back to the core of our Being, to our heart, and to our connection with each other." Ragani
"Beneath the surface play of the mind lies an endless ocean of love and peace waiting to be discovered. Let us look together and find what can never be lost" - Mark
